Barrichello becomes a father

RUBENS BARRICHELLO became a father on Sunday when his wife Silvana gave birth to a son on Sunday in Sao Paulo. The Barrichellos have decided to name the child Eduardo and Barrichello is now in a position to concentrate completely on his task of coming second in the World Championship. Rubens hopes that make it the perfect season for Ferrari, which has not finished 1-2 since 1979 when Jody Scheckter and Gilles Villeneuve pulled off that achievement in a year when the opposition stumbled over one another and allowed Ferrari to come out ahead.

On that occasion the Ligier team dominated the early part of the season but then faded away while Williams started out slowly and came on strong at the end of the year.
